Hi all,

We've made the following changes to the 1.9 package repository layout:

Deleted the 1.9/lindsey repos

The BioC 1.9 repos contain no more packages that depend on a
Lindsey repos hence the decision to remove this repos from the
list of 1.9 repos.
 From now the 1.9 repos are:
  - bioc (188 packages)
  - data/annotation (635 packages)
  - data/experiment (12 packages)
  - omegahat (6 packages)
  - monograph (10 packages)
An index for each of these repos can be found at:

Made the 1.9/monograph a "normal" repos

This repos used to be an "hidden" repos i.e. it was not "scanned" by
biocLite(). Now:
  - it's scanned by biocLite()
  - it's listed by biocReposList() (starting with Biobase 1.11.26)
  - it can be mirrored like any other 1.9 repos (see our "Mirror Howto"
    page here:
    for more information about how to mirror the Bioconductor package

Finally, the yeastExprData package has been moved from the 1.9/monograph
to the 1.9/data/experiment repos.
